[texts]Establishing a Hybrid Plasma Environment Simulation Facility
Over the past decade, investigations into dusty plasmas have improved our understanding of  protoplanetary environments, moons (including Earth's Moon), ring systems and comets. They have also been instrumental in the advancement of semiconductor development, nanofabrication and are proving of great interest in the dust contamination problems found within nuclear fusion devices such as ITER. Recently, the Lunar Exploration Analysis Group (LEAG) identified a need for research on the lunar dust a...
Keywords: Inductively Coupled Plasma Source; Natural Plasma; Man-Made Plasma; Dusty Plasma; Plasma Simulator; Environment Simulation; the National Research Council (NRC) established the Committee on the Scientific Context for Exploration of the Moon. This committee prepared a report; titled The Scientific Context for Exploration of the Moon [1]; to provide scientific input to NASA facilitating the planning of a “comprehensive; well-validated; and prioritized set of scientific research objectives for a program of exploration of the Moon”. Within the eight scientific concepts and 35 scientific goals; the lunar plasma environment was identified as an area of research where significant gaps in our current understanding remain. Improving our understanding of the space plasma environment at the lunar surface and in lunar orbit is essential for appropriately preparing and providing subsequent support for robotic and human exploration. Properly defining such a dust and plasma environment requires both laboratory experiments and numerical modelling. The Center for Astrophysics; Space Physics and Engineering Research (CASPER) at Baylor University; Texas; and its partner the Institute of Space Systems (IRS); Universität Stuttgart; Germany; plan to address the above through the characterization and validation of a flexible plasma facility IPG6-B [2] at Baylor University; which is a twin facility to the IPG6-S [3] facility in Stuttgart at IRS. IPG is short for Inductively heated Plasma Generator. The plasma source design is
